Protecting Your Interests In Tax Litigation Matters

Scope of Tax Litigation

Civil and criminal tax litigation involving the IRS or any other government agencies is a matter of utmost importance. Tax audits can result in penalties, collection actions and criminal charges as a result of:

  • Failure to file
  • Unpaid taxes
  • Tax evasion
  • Tax fraud
  • Employment tax underpayment
  • Not responding to a Notice of Deficiency
  • Corporate tax underpayment/underreporting
  • Income tax under withholding and reporting
  • Sales and use tax understatements
  • Unpaid interest and penalties from prior periods
  • Failure to meet the terms of agreements with taxing authorities

Settling Matters Outside of Court

The assistance of a skilled tax dispute attorney can sometimes avoid litigation by strengthening your bargaining position. We can effectively navigate your situation and work for a resolution outside of the court process, including:

  • Tax adjustments
  • Reduction of tax penalties/interest
  • Administrative settlements and appeals
  • Offers in compromise (OICs)
  • Installment payment agreements
  • Petitions to the IRS for re-examination of the facts/books
